Shaping Up

For some reason I managed to miss the first challenge over on Lexi's Challenges. Time is never plentiful on occasion!

Anyway, I was quite pleased with myself when I noticed the current challenge which is:

Shaped Cards

As I'd just completed making this for Nikky's appearance on Create and Craft this coming Thursday at 2pm where she will be showcasing her very brand new cd - Back To Nature. And here are some of the elements from the cd!

This is the first time I've made a shaped card like this and it only came about because of the images yelled at me to make them into this shape!

The little scene has been cut out along with the trees and little alphies and added to the background with 3d foam pads. And that is it! A fairly quick card to make (once I'd sorted out the folds and measurements!) and the new cd is fantastic - you really need to see the animals on it they are hilarious!!

Don't be surprised if you see more of these little houses on future new house cards as they are so sweet and detailed!
  • All elements: Polkadoodles Back to Nature cd (launched date 3 December at 2pm on Create and Craft)
